It has been and excruciatingly tough week for me....over the weekend we found out about an urgent placement situation for a little boy who was born premature and suffered some brain damage. I was absolutly smitten and thrilled when I learned the fees were very low and within our budget. Early in the week there was a possibility that we would be picking up this baby today from the hospital. Everything came together so smoothly in the begining. It seemed so rock solid and then, it began to fall apart....things went awry there, and things happened here and my heart was broken. Yesterday we had to make the heartbreaking choice to let go of that hope. I am very sad, and it is really hard, because we also got some great news, our family will be travelling next week to finally meet Andre, and we are all very excited....It is hard to be so excited and yet grieving at the same time.
